Larson Electronics has announced the addition of an explosion proof LED
light fixture designed for corrosion resistance and emergency backup
operation in the event of power failures. The HALSS-EMG-48-2L-LED
Hazardous Area LED Light Fixture is a fully stainless steel light
fixture equipped with an automatic battery backup system that provides
continued illumination even in the event of total power failures.

Hazardous Area LED Light Fixture
is designed to provide reliable and
corrosion resistant high performance lighting in applications where
failsafe operation explosion proof protection is needed. This heavy duty explosion
proof light fixture
features a stainless steel housing with
stainless steel hardware for excellent durability and resistance to the
effects of corrosive salt water and wet environments. The fixture is
fitted with a pair of four foot long LED T series tube lamps which
produce more light output than comparable T8 fluorescent tubes, but use
less power and have twice the service life with a 50,000 hour rating.
This LED
light fixture
contains no ballast, but instead has a built in
battery backup system that will operate the fixture automatically in the
event a power failure occurs. The HALSS-EMG-48-2L-LED installs using
included standard flat surface mounting flanges, and is an ideal
lighting solution for offshore oil platforms, marinas, refueling areas,
and any location where corrosion protection and Class 1 Division 2
explosion proof approval is required.

“The HALSS-EMG-48-2L-LED is designed for operators needing a corrosion
resistant fixture equipped with a failsafe emergency backup for power
failures,” said Robert Bresnahan with Larson Electronics
“For a small incremental cost, operators can meet the requirements for
Class 1 Division 2 emergency lighting, while still having a fully
functional light fixture for daily operational use. It makes a lot more
sense than purchasing and installing separate hazardous location lights,
particular over doorways and exits.”

Larson Electronics produces a full range of industrial and commercial
lighting equipment, explosion proof LED lights, explosion proof work
lights, military and law enforcement lighting equipment, and a full line
of heavy duty LED and metal halide light towers. To view the entire
